International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($36-$40; tasted from tank; a blend of 55% merlot, 40% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot) Medium ruby. A coulis of black fruits on the nose, along with exotic oak spices. Sweet, lush and broad, with flavors of crystallized black fruits. Finishes with fine tannins. If the 2002 is Medoc-like, this is more in a right bank style.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 153

The 2000 was the finest Lascombes produced in over three decades, and the 2001 continues the great success this estate is enjoying under the guidance of Yves Vatelot (of Chateau Reignac) and Dr. Alain Raynaud (Chateau Quinault l'Enclos). A blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot, it spent 18 months in cask (4 on its lees), and was bottled unfiltered. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by ripe aromas of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and cassis. Medium-bodied, stylish, and elegant, with sweet tannin, impressive concentration, tremendous persistence as well as flavor intensity, and a 40+ second finish, this noble claret should be at its finest between 2005-2016.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Intense aromas of blackberries, licorice and earth. Full-bodied, with lots of smoky oak and medium ripe fruit. A wine that is well-constructed, modern and interesting. One of the best Lascombes I have tasted. American-owned. 18,625 cases made.

Ruby, opaque with tinges of light amber. Good depth of colour. Cherry, blackcurrant, prune, rich sweet fruit and pepper. Flavours of rich sweet blackcurrant, caramel, notes of redcurrant and brown sugar. Thick and sticky, full bodied with some tannin and overall a real concentration. Quite a sweet wine, with strong fruit. The black fruit was predominant and it will be interesting to see how this develops. Excellent.
